Kenny Signs For QPR

Paddy Kenny has penned a deal with Queens Park Rangers following a fee-trigger in his contract

The former Blades 'keeper was allowed to speak to Rangers after a 750,000 minimum-fee release clause was met.

The Fulham Chronicle were the first to report the deal with Neil Warnock delighted to capture his man.

'It's the third time I've signed Paddy and I'm delighted to be linking up with him again.

'There were times when it was him or Shay Given for the Irish spot, and in my opinion Paddy didn't get the recognition he deserved.

'It's well known he's made mistakes in the past but he'll be a great capture for QPR, and I'm sure he's going to be popular in the changing room and with our fans.'


Rangers were severely short-staffed in the goalkeeping region with Warnock making no secret of his admiration for a number of 'keepers.

Finally however Rangers have their man, as the club website seems poised to break the news officially.

Things happen and people move on. We know all too well what happened with Clarke Carlisle. Personally I think the issue you have should be with your chairman and manager - why would they put a release clause in the contract of what was an important player?
Boxer
release clause or no release clause kenny owed the club big time and he stated this. contracts aren't worth the paper they are written on if a player wants to leave or if a player doesnt want to leave. its always in the players hands unless the club refuses to offer a new contract to a player.
bladesforlife1889
Don't forget that even when he had completed his ban he still didn't train with the first team and evidently the manager and chairman didn't do enough to make him stay. It's disappointing from your perspective but if Paddy didn't think he was wanted why should he stay?
Boxer
your not quite right there boxer. kenny was allowed and did train 3 weeks before his ban was over which was part of the agreement. he was paid in full, and the club had contact with him every day, they even organised counciling for him as he was very low. as soon as the ban was over he went straight into the starting line up for the last 2 games of the season...pampered by the club and got a heros welcome on the final day of the season at the lane when he came onto the pitch. HOW MUCH DO YOU EXPECT A CLUB TO DO? Fact is he's a greedy thicko that has only gone to you lot for the money...thats it. we are a much bigger club that get double your gates why else would he leave to join you lot?

Hahaha this plonker bladesforlife1889 sounds like the Scousers that come to lecture us Chelsea fans. You and Sean Bean should both find something better to do mate.

WHO CARES IF YOU ARE A BIGGER CLUB WE WILL BE THW BETTER CLUB NEXT SEASON and the reason he webt into the starting line up is because he was your best keeper!!!!!!

It's not a question of who is bigger than who - It's a question of ambition. Apologies for my misinformation regarding his training, I'd heard several Blades fans saying it and thought it was true. As you'll agree I think this season we are a club that is very ambitious, you only need to read Saksena or Warnock's comments to realise what we're aiming for this season. Kenny - who was entitled to speak to us due to the terms that your club agreed to place in his contract - wants to be a part of that. It's not a question of 'I want to get away from Sheffield United' - it's more like 'I want to join Neil Warnock and QPR - sorry Sheffield United.' These things happen bladesforlife1889, but throwing is 'my club is bigger than your club' is very condescending and poor reasoning for an argument.
Boxer
Agree boxer we have a much better chance of going up next season than Sheffield United!!!!
